***Due to COVID-19 Precautions and to ensure the safety of our patients and volunteers we are currently not placing volunteers with patients. However, you may get involved by sending homemade cards to our office to distribute to our patients (birthday, thinking of you, words of encouragement, etc). We will be updating this listing as more information becomes available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Updated 6.22.2020
Are you a military Veteran? Would you like to make a difference in the lives of fellow Veterans who are in hospice care?
Silverado Hospice of Austin is part of the We Honor Veterans program with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHCPO) and the Department of Veteran's Affairs (VA). It is our honor to care for our Veterans to provide end-of-life care. We are seeking volunteers who are Veterans and would like to provide companionship and socialization for the Veteran patients.
We ask that you commit at least twice a month for a minimum of 6 months; some volunteers are able to give a few hours a week or every other week - it is flexible to your schedule! All volunteers must be willing and able to pass a criminal background check, drug screening, TB skin test or X-ray, and have reliable transportation.
You will undoubtedly find your volunteer experience with Silverado to be rewarding, educational, and life changing as you positively affect the hearts and spirits our Veterans receiving end-of-life care.

Silverado Hospice's mission is to affirm the cycle of life by enhancing the quality of living for those at the end of life. The Silverado standard is to care compassionately for patients and their families and to empower those we serve to have quality of life options that afford them comfort and dignity.
Hospice volunteers are ordinary people of all ages with extraordinary love and a common bond; the concern for others. Our volunteers are an integral part of our Circle of Care team, meeting patient and family needs in many different ways including:
Providing companionship and socialization
Providing needed non-medical services, letter writing, running errands and assisting with family needs
Providing office support for direct patient care activities
Silverado Hospice patients and families experience L.I.F.E. ( Love, Innovation, Family and Engagement ) through our special hospice programs. Turn a few hours a week into priceless moments for hospice patients and families.
